Alexandria, VA Nursing Home Lawyer

Alexandria VA nursing home lawyerIf you suspect or know that a loved one is being abused or neglected in a nursing home in Alexandria or someplace else in Virginia, it may be in your best interest to discuss their rights with an Alexandria, VA nursing home lawyer who is experienced at successfully the rights of nursing home abuse victims.

At Cohen & Cohen, we understand just how difficult it is for families who are forced to make the decision to place their elderly loved one in a nursing home. We also know that when you finally do choose the facility, you expect that your loved one will be treated with the respect and compassion they deserve.

Tragically, nursing home abuse lawyers from our firm can attest that many nursing home patients are subjected to acts of neglectful or abusive behaviors by the very people who have been entrusted to take care of your loved one to. Our firm has been advocating for nursing home abuse victims and their families for more than 25 years, fighting to obtain the justice and financial compensation they deserve for the horrific ordeal nursing home staff subjected them to. If you suspect your loved one is being abused or neglected, contact a nursing home lawyer at Cohen & Cohen today to find out how we can help your loved one in Alexandria, throughout VA, and in the surrounding states.

There are many different types of incidents that fall under abuse and neglect. Our firm has successfully represented many types of these cases. The most common that we see at our firm include:

  • Bed sores
  • Bruises
  • Dislocations
  • Falls
  • Fractures
  • Infections
  • Medication errors
  • Malnutrition

Tragically, many of these incidents go unreported by the victim because they are too afraid to tell their family what is happening to them. Another common reason is that the victim is unable to communicate the abuse or neglect because of cognitive inabilities due to dementia or other medical conditions. This is why it is so important for family to not only regularly visit a loved one in a nursing home. It is imperative to be aware of any signs of abuse or neglect a nursing home resident may be displaying.

If you see any of the following, contact a reputable nursing home lawyer who is licensed to protect people in Alexandria, VA, Washington, DC, and Maryland:

  • Nursing home staff does not allow you to be alone with your loved one
  • There are sudden and unexplained changes in your loved one’s personality or behavior
  • When you go visit your loved one, you are told by staff that you cannot see him or her right away, or they tell you they can have no visitors at all
  • Your loved one has experienced a sudden and unexplained weight loss
  • Your loved one has possessions that are missing
  • Your loved one has unexplained bruises, cuts, or other injuries

If you have experienced any of the above or other signs of what might be abuse, discussing the rights of your loved one with a Alexandria, VA nursing home lawyer may help you to make a more informed decision about what to do next.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
